My sweet Tonar passed just last week, two days before he would have turned 11. He had DM, but ironically his stomach turned in the middle of the night and emergency surgery didn't help. I'm glad to have found this site, for in my heart I know you all truly understand the pain I am in.

Thanks, Molly.

I was honored to be part of your life.
At 5 1/2 weeks old, we first met.
You jumped into my arms and I never let you go.
I was lucky to call you mine.
You were such a good boy, a privilege to love, an honor to know.
When others were chewing up shoes, you were snuggling in bed with me,
When I needed a hug, you offered a kiss.
If I ever doubted you, you proved me wrong, time and time again.
When you tilted your head, I knew you understood my every word,
When life seemed so sad and confusing, your eyes reminded me that we had each other.
You gave me courage when I was weak.
When there was joy in my life, you shared it with me.
You knew me like no other and for that, my friend, words will never express the sorrow I feel today.
For you were my best pal, and I will remember you for all eternity.
I miss you every hour of every minute of every day,
We all do.
I hope we meet again some day, as I owe you my everything for always loving me unconditionally!!!
Thank you, my sweet wookie, I love you. Rest in peace!

To Tonar's Owner
by: Karen

Your sweet wookie, Tonar, will never be forgotten. He will always have a very special place in your heart.

I'm so sorry to read about his passing. I know how you must be hurting badly. Please accept my deepest sympathy on your loss.

I wish I could give everyone on this website a shoulder to cry on. The loss of a beloved pet dog can be so devastating to a whole family. Try to remember the great times you had with Tonar. It's alright to talk to him and tell him that you will always love him.

Sorry for Your Loss
by: from Leah

I'm very sorry for your loss. Never forget, what you shared with your best friend will never be taken away from you. We lost our Graphit almost a month ago (he was 15) and I still miss him so much. We now have a new puppy but Graphit's place can never be replaced. This new puppy will have his own place.

So sorry for your loss
by: Laura

Allow yourself the time you need to grieve, for this is an important loss. When you are ready, you will remember Tonar with smiles instead of tears. Your beautiful tribute is a step towards healing.

If I may suggest, in a while, if you like to read, there is a book called "A Dog's Purpose," which is very good. It helped me after losing our 14 year old dog a few months ago. Hugs to you.

I'm so sorry
